Just some of the gifts

Mrs. Sekerak (mother of the bride) and Peter B. (brother of the groom)

Everyone seated, enjoying the delicious meal while watching a slideshow of pictures

(the meal. I always take pictures of special meals. :))

Katia has a tradition of giving every bride a 'jewel' (in reality, glass, but still quite pretty)
from her privately owned collection! She presented Angie with a purple one.

Sam and I

Sam and I had a great time with some friends from Indiana whom we don't get to see often:

(Grace and Hannah A.)

Alex B (cousin of the groom) and Sam

We greatly enjoyed talking with each of you!

Mr. Burns (father of the groom) and his granddaughter (niece of the groom!)

The following pictures my sister Élodie took....

A flower girl.....*sniffs* I'll never get to be one. And I just realized that now. haha.

After the V. Reel, the newlyweds departed amidst a sea of bubbles...

Me with two of my favorite girls:  Sara and Shannon! (they are cousins to eachother, and I've adopted both of them as my cousins as well! :) )
Both are incredibly sweet young ladies and wonderful examples to me!

August 2011: Chad and Angie's wedding...some pictures!

Saturday, Aug. 20th:
Arriving early at the impressive church where the wedding was to be held, we (several Burnses and my sister and I) got to look around some, marvelling at the brilliant stain glass windows, vaulted ceiling, elegant ironwork and lanterns, beautiful organ, and more.
We also took a little wallk around the church and down the road a little before it began raining slightly

Side of the church
Walking together

Here is little Abigail again- isn't she cute! What a DARLING yawn. I wish I looked that sweet when I yawn...

Abigail's parents- Matthew and Lisa (Lisa is the sister of the groom)

My friend Sara (Chad's sister) getting her hair done by a friend of Angie's.

And, below, Sara walking up the aisle: (sorry about the red-eye)

The bridesmaid's gowns were lovely!

Four flower girls! (sisters)

The entrance of the bride:
Angie looked radiant as she came up the aisle on her father's arm!

Exchanging vows

The happy couple had a receiving line to dismiss guests

Outside the church afterwards:
And.... 'tis ourselves! Elodie, Jessie, Sam, Me, Valérie, Nikola,
and in front: Katia, Laura-Lise and Alexandre.

We certainly enjoyed ourselves!
And, if you like, Reception pictures to follow! I guess I'm just having fun sharing these pictures with everyone of  this memorable and beautiful time!
I hope all enjoy these pictures, whether you are Burnses, wedding guests, friends unable to make it to the wedding or  interested blog readers!

Have a good day!
